Stove top stuffing instead of potatoes!!!
And there is another one: "More park sausages MOM, please"
I am stuck on Bandaid Brand and Bandaid stuck on me.
I don't remember the whole commercials but those are the funny parts of them.

"I pick things up and I put them down" Planet Fitness ad. Especially made me laugh with my five year old walking around saying it.

"It's not nice to fool Mother Nature." I can't remember the brand name, but it was a commercial for margerine.

The old Yardley soap commercials with the Donovan song in the background.

...the "S" stands for "salt". We throw that out (mash's ham)

and while not a commercial, anytime/anywhere bells go off, it's automatically followed with "Time for Captain Cheasapeake" (which puts a time stamp on your age...).

Although this may not be my favorite commercial, and it is not too old (2009), I always find it so strange: Cadbury eyebrow commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SjUXdBovpg

Also, the new Budweiser puppy ad is really just too cute not to share: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRREKLz9KhY

I've had quite a few laughs with commercials. A few comes to mind: the 2014 Pepsi Grammy's half time show commercial; at the end of the commercial, the singer attempts to close the show on a giant Pepsi football - think Miley Cyrus' wrecking ball.

Another favorite is that Sprint commercial aka the Zombie's commercial (...hey, lets not go putting labels on people (a piece of his cracked ear fall off, the look on the representative's face is priceless)... ok, I'm a Zombie!....

Lets not forget the Geico/Geko commercials...

Totally hilarious...

Oscar Mayer bologna and the Coca-Cola polar bear commercials are two of my favorites

While these are not my favorites, I heard them so much that I can't help but remember them!

Hey, hey Fox Chervrolet! 10% down, 48 months to pay... If you want to save on a '63, Fox Cheverolet is the dealer to see!

National Beer, National Beer, you'll like the taste of National Beer and while I'm about it I'm proud to say, it's brewed on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay!

There was an amusement park in down with the worst jingle imagineable:

...just for fun come to Fraley's Amusement Park
...and just for fun there's RIDES AND TICKETS AND EVERYTHING.

Just the worst.

I enjoyed Chrysler's Super Bowl Commercial with Eminem, as well as the Budweiser commercial featuring the clydesdale who goes back to his owner after the parade.

And the CareerBuilder commercial with the workplace monkeys lighting money on fire: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1owcncKCHg

O.K. Bonnie and Sue, let me go back in time a bit:
Remember the Parkay butter commercial? There also was the "we wear shorts, shorts" commercial for Nair ( I believe); and the singing "meow" cat for Meow Mix.

Baby Boomers will remember...1. the Alka Seltzer commercial during the 60's-70's sung by the Alka Seltzer guy "Speedy".....it went like this.....Plop-Plop-Fizz-Fizz oh what a relief it is!!! It was very melodic and once you started singing it you couldn't get it out of your head!
2. Remember the "Have a Coke and a Smile" commercial for pepsi Cola? where the kid is standing in the tunnel of a football stadium and Steeler's player Mean Joe Greene comes out? The kid is in awe...Mean Joe is sipping a Pepsi, he looks at the kid gives him a smile and throws him his football jersey....Mean Joe is no longer "mean Joes" at that point!!!
There are so many I'm thinking of!
One more... Coca Cola, "I'd Like to teach the world to sing", who didn't walk around humming that?

Because it's throwback Thursday (and because, for some reason, I awoke with this jingle in my head), I want to mention the old Cloverland Dairy commercial: "If you don't own a cow, call Cloverland now, it's North-9-2222." This would translate to 410-669-2222 in today's phone number convention. Not even sure if Cloverland is still a viable concern, but the jingle must have been successful, since I still remember it after all these years (another jingle is "Mommy, call Hampton, Belmont-5-0600." or 410-235-0600 - Hampton is/was a rug-cleaning service).

I also truly appreciate the creativity of ALL the eTrade commercials with the baby and all the Budweiser commercials featuring the Clydesdale horses and other animals (but those are much more recent than the two examples cited above).

My favorite funny commercial is the Pepsi Next baby trying to get his parents' attention. Check out the 30-second video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuL1fYARfDU .

Because it's throwback Thurdsay.....

how about the old children's aspirin commercial where the kids says "mothers are like that...yeah, they are..."
or
"I've fallen and I can't get up"

From the early-mid 1960's, Olde Frothingslosh: "The pale stale ale for the pale stale male." also, "The only beer with the foam on the bottom." It was really just Iron City beer from Pittsburgh, relabeled at holiday time

I actually have 2.....

1. It is a car commercial and the boy has a football that a whole gang of boys take it away from him and tell him to come back when he has a full team. It is an SUV that is being advertised as his mother drives the car and he picks up his friends at different locations to take to the football field with him.

2. Hump Day with the camel.
